Feeling bored and need something to jumpstart the creative engine?

Sometimes the desire to create just needs a spark – some sort of seed to grow from. This quick, solder-free project turns your Adafruit CLUE into a randomized project generator. It's simple to use and easy to customize by adding your own activities & subjects.
